Cape Town

Savoy Cabbage

101 Hout St.
Cape Town, 8000, South Africa
TEL: 27-21-424-2626

Housed inside two 18th-century Georgian row houses, this upscale South African restaurant combines historic design elements—such as centuries-old brick, Table Mountain stone, and cast-iron support columns—with contemporary touches like glass wall partitions, exposed ductwork, and cabbage-shaped chandeliers. The ground floor contains the open kitchen, while the mezzanine level has additional seating and a small champagne bar. Incorporating fresh organic produce and wild African game (think warthog and wildebeest), the daily changing menu may include the signature tomato tort, followed by spiced springbok with spätzle, red cabbage, cranberries, and port sauce.

Insider Tip:

Entrée portions are large here; if you want to guarantee room for the cardamom crème brûlée, consider ordering two first courses instead.
